[FIXED] Fellowes DM8C Paper Shredder Never Stops
Fellowes DM8C A long while back I bought a Fellowes DM8C paper shredder. Over the years, it has shredded just about anything I've fed it. It is designed with an infrared LED emitter and receiver in its mouth, whose job it is to trigger the shredder's motor ...

Chrysler 3.6L Pentastar V6 Oil Filter Replacement (2014 Jeep Wrangler/JK)
Last weekend, when I went to perform an oil change on my 2014 Wrangler, I could not figure out where the oil filter was!  After consulting the interwebs, I was delighted to discover that the 3.6L V6 has a replaceable element oil filter, much like the 2.4L I...

Unveiling the secrets to adding permanent color to PVC pipes that won't flake off.
PVC is cheap, common, easy to work, and easy to join. Only problem is, it's kinda ugly, mostly because it only comes in white, gray, black, and clear.

Scanning Double-Sided Documents With a Single Sheet Scanner Under Linux
I like to keep documents.  Receipts, statements, manuals, pamphlets, you name it.  I file things away in hanging folders for later reference. Since the kiddos came along it has gotten harder and harder to make time for all of this organization, and with a h...

Set your Raspberry Pi shell prompt to another color
I've got two terminal windows open, one is on my local machine and the other is on my Raspberry Pi.  The problem I've got is that when I'm switching back and forth I sometimes forget if I'm in the correct window or not.  Here is what they look like: They lo...

Dell Inspiron 3520 Wifi Upgrade (Goodbye, Broadcom 43142)
I bought this laptop in 2012 for $399, and the biggest complaint I've had about it, by far, is the Broadcom 43142 Wifi card in Linux.  I even completely switched distros once to get the updated BlueZ Bluetooth stack, hoping for better Bluetooth support.  No...

Rescued a Motorola Droid Razr M from the Junk Drawer
I was up in northern Michigan visiting my parents over the Christmas holiday, and I discovered that my mom had placed a Motorola Droid Razr M in a junk drawer.  I remember her being extremely frustrated with this phone, and the few times I looked at it for ...

+Techmoan !! That wifi password entry was a total tease to us old guys, and I'm a little green that I didn't think of something that clever for my own network!! 😊 You do a great job with your reviews and your editing.

Protip:  sshfs works great from Linux desktop --> Raspberry Pi.  I've mounted a source directory on Rpi with sshfs and I can edit files from my desktop using gvim (with nice colors, mouse, etc.).  This is much better than what I was doing before.   #raspberrypi   #linux   #ssh   #sshfs

You're right, I should expect 60 deg one day and 3" of snow the next... 😊

Had a great experience getting auto financing here, it was a really easy process and the loan officer Chris Wade made the whole process easy for both the vehicle seller and I. Chris wants your business and will go out of his way for you. A+.

Best ice cream, best milk, best location, best cows, best employees. Should be marked 5 stars permanently, and should be on every map of Michigan.

My wife and I split the BLT while in town for a wedding. Hit the spot! A charming deli in a charming town. :)

Kevin (owner of Superior Plumbing and Heating) will do the work right and treat your property as if it were his own. He will also talk you through different options, and he will recommend the option that makes the most sense, not necessarily the option that will make him the most money. I had a new furnace and air conditioner installed at my house, and other plumbing jobs done by Superior at my rental property, and I have been extremely pleased. There is no need to look elsewhere, this is the business and owner you have been looking for. My A/C and furnace installation actually exceeded my expectations, Kevin took extra time to route the copper cooling line where it made SENSE and again, not where it was easiest/quickest. I can't imagine a review under 5 stars unless it is a competitor, and there are are many around here. FEEL FREE to ping me directly on G+ and ask me about my experience.

Come here for lunch or early in the day. If you come here at night or anytime its packed, you get this typical Grand Rapids style seating, it's really awesome. Here's how it works: You walk in the door and stand in a line. You scan the room looking for people who are wiping their mouths, yawning, or paying the bill. Your heart rate elevates as you've targeted a table about to vacate... Just as you're ready to pounce on it, it gets sniped by someone else who spotted it. Doesn't that sound like fun? This game can last 30 minutes or more. You can grab a table from anywhere in line too, this is the 'honor system' and the entitled individuals in the middle of the line often feel free to grab openings as they appear. There are several GR restaurants that use this method to fill up their tables -- they don't want to bother with a host who will give you a wait time and walk you to a table when it opens up. It's pathetic. That being said, the beer is awesome, some of the best in the state, and the sandwiches and light fare they serve is also very good. I love Founder's beer but to visit this place is much like going to a circus. Skip it.
